You Did for Me

For I was hungry
and you gave me food

I was thirsty
and you gave me drink

I was a stranger
and you welcomed me

I was naked
and you gave me clothing

I was sick
and you looked after me

I was in prison
and you came to me…

Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Comment policy: ESA represents a wide variety of understandings and practices surrounding our shared Christian faith. The purpose of the ESA blog is to facilitate loving conversation; please know that individual authors do not speak for ESA as a whole. Even if you don\'t see yourself or your experience reflected in something you read here, we invite you to experience it anyway, and see if God can meet you there. What can take away from considering this point of view? What might you add? The comments section below is where you can share the answers to those questions, if you feel so moved. Please express your thoughts in ways that are constructive, purposeful, and respectful. Give those you disagree with the benefit of the doubt, and assume they are neither idiots nor evil. Name-calling, sweeping condemnations, and any other comments that suggest you have forgotten that we are all children of God will be deleted. Thank you!
